AhMyth Android Remote Administration tool installation
Let’s get started with the installation process of the AhMyth.
First step is to install it. Download it from GitHub. Be sure to pick the correct package for you. I will need to download the 64-bit Debian package, because my OS is 64-bit Debian based Linux Distribution.
Then, install it. On Windows it’s just clicking after clicking. With Linux Mint I could install it with GDebi installer, but I am going to show you how to install it in like Ubuntu, Kali or Debian. Open up the terminal and go to your downloads folder with it.
Then let’s install it with dpkg. You must do the command as super user.
sudo dpkg -i AhMyth_linux64.deb
I’m not sure if you face any depency errors, but if you get those you can run
sudo apt-get -f install to most likely fix them. If you face any other problems, comment below and I’ll help you.
After installing it, you can just fire it up from terminal by typing
ahmyth or find it from your applications menu.
This is how it should look.
AhMyth Android RAT Set Up
Now comes the hardest part of this tutorial setting up android remote administration tool, you will need to port forward your router to listen the right port. I suggest using the default port of the AhMyth, but you can change it if you know the port you’re choosing is not already in use. If you have dynamic IP Address, you might want to use service like No-IP to keep the connection up.
If you don’t want to port forward, you can use VPN service with port forwarding. I can give you one, it’s AirVPN.
I am not going to explain more about port forwarding, so if you don’t know anything about this, you’ll need to do some research yourself first. The Internet is full of tutorials for that.
Now, insert the IP address, or the domain you’ve set up to the IP address field in AhMyth. Also the port you’re using to the port field.
Then hit the build button. After building the apk, move it to your Android device and install it as any other application. You will just have to allow your Android device to install apps outside the Google Play.
You can find the apk file from
NOTE: If you get
Adding source ip:port Failed error, open AhMyth as superuser. You can do it by typing
sudo ahmyth on the terminal.
If your build succeeds, it will look like this.
